NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Anthony Firkser could be working in banking or finance, maybe even on Wall Street with the applied mathematics degree earned at Harvard.
Luckily for the Titans, the converted wide receiver is playing tight end in Tennessee.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans right tackle Jack Conklin and tight end Jonnu Smith have been placed on injured reserve with knee injuries, a double blow for a team on the fringe of the playoff race.

To fill the roster spots, the Titans on Tuesday signed free agent offensive lineman Austin Pasztor and added tight end Cole Wick to their active roster from the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans finally are starting to show signs that some of their growing pains of learning a new offense may be easing.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Rookie head coach Mike Vrabel has no time to imagine how much better his struggling Tennessee offense might be if only three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker hadn't broken his ankle in the Titans' season opener.
Next man up is a necessity as much as a cliche in the NFL.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are doing their best to help their young group of wide receivers grow up.
General manager Jon Robinson's biggest personnel move before Tuesday's trade deadline was adding a fullback, not bolstering a receiving corps that includes a couple second-year players (Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor) and another (Tajae Sharpe) essentially in his second season after sitting out 2017 on injured reserve.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Around 10,000 spectators remained at the finish of the Miami Dolphins' marathon win over Tennessee, and they were hardly fair weather fans.
Lightning forced two delays of about two hours each Sunday, and it took Miami more than seven hours to complete a 27-20 victory.
"Appreciate all you Dolphins fans sticking it out tonight," quarterback Ryan Tannehill shouted to a camera as he headed for the locker room. "Win No. 1, baby."
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans did their best to protect their starters for the regular season, letting Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota lead the cheers from the sidelines.

Evans has been dealing with an undisclosed injury since July 28. The 22nd pick overall out of Alabama warmed up Wednesday and took part in individual drills before leaving practice.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Vrabel wanted his debut as Tennessee's head coach to start on offense.
It was an impressive beginning in the Titans' preseason opener.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Delanie Walker will leave the white suit to celebrate a new contract to teammate Taylor Lewan. The three-time Pro Bowl tight end going into his 13th NFL season is too busy working to be better than last season.
And now Walker is under contract through 2020 with yet another contract extension.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans and Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker have agreed to a two-year extension keeping him under contract through the 2020 season.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Delanie Walker held the ball in the end zone and waited for his teammates to celebrate.
They came from every direction: Left, right and even the bench.
The Tennessee Titans tight end caught two touchdown passes, including an 18-yarder with 1:31 remaining , and the AFC beat the NFC 24-23 in a rain-soaked Pro Bowl on Sunday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker has replaced Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce on the AFC roster for the Pro Bowl.
Walker was named as Kelce's replacement Tuesday.
This will be the third straight Pro Bowl appearance for Walker, who was an alternate this season. Walker led the Titans with 74 catches and 807 yards receiving, and he also scored three touchdowns.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will be without outside linebacker Derrick Morgan on Sunday when they visit the Arizona Cardinals.
Morgan, who leads the Titans with 7 1/2 sacks, sprained a knee in last week's 24-13 victory over the Houston Texans and did not practice at all this week.
"He'll be out this week. He's still day-to-day, in our opinion," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans defensive lineman DaQuan Jones has a torn bicep muscle and will have season-ending surgery.
Coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Jones will be placed on injured reserve.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans may not impress many people with how they're playing.
If they keep piling up victories, that's all that matters.
LeShaun Sims intercepted a pass intended for DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone with 1:02 left, and the Titans beat the Houston Texans 24-13 on Sunday to stay atop the AFC South.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Staying atop the AFC South and chasing the franchise's first playoff berth since 2008. The Tennessee Titans insist that's their only focus when they host the Houston Texans on Sunday, needing a win against the two-time division champ to stay exactly where they want to be.
Payback? Revenge for the 57-14 thumping the Texans handed Tennessee back on Oct. 1 ?
NEW YORK (AP) — Jets cornerback Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 for his illegal hit on Tampa Bay receiver DeSean Jackson last week and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict wasn't fined after his ejection against Tennessee for pushing away the arm of an official who tried to break up a sideline scuffle.
Burfict wasn't fined for his late hit out of bounds two plays earlier, either.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker can pin down the biggest difference between the Titans this season and their often painful struggles of recent seasons.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee running back DeMarco Murray practiced fully Wednesday for the Titans despite hurting a knee and an arm in a win over Baltimore.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker's playing status Sunday will be a game-time decision against the Baltimore Ravens.
If you were watching NFL games last weekend — and for much of the season — and didn't notice Zach Ertz and Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis and Rob Gronkowski, well, you probably weren't watching very carefully.
Tight end, not too long ago almost an afterthought for many teams, has become a critical spoke in the offensive wheel.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A four-play sequence sums up the Tennessee Titans' season so far.
With first-and-goal at the Cleveland 1, the Titans ran DeMarco Murray twice without success. Marcus Mariota missed a wide-open tight end Delanie Walker in the end zone. Then they couldn't reach pay dirt on fourth down with Derrick Henry running behind a line featuring Pro Bowler Taylor Lewan at left tackle and All-Pro Jack Conklin at right tackle.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey has rewarded his Titans for two straight wins by giving them an entire week off for their bye.
Well, most of the players. The coach has made it mandatory for any injured Titan to stick around the facilities and continue treatment and rehabilitation.
And there are a handful of Titans needing to rest and recover.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are unsure whether a trio of players will be able to play Sunday when they visit the winless Cleveland Browns.
Running back DeMarco Murray, who tweaked his hamstring for the second time this season Monday night, returned to practice Friday but was limited in his workouts. He will be a game-time decision.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans informed the NFL about the death threats to Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker and his family because of the anthem protests. The league said Friday its security department is investigating.
Walker disclosed the threats Thursday night in a post shared on social media . Walker told fans upset by the protests that they didn't have to go to the games if they felt disrespected.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker smothered the ball on the onside kick attempt inside the final two minutes.
And then the Titans were set up to punt with 11 seconds left on the clock. But the Seahawks were penalized for having 12 men on the field. And when the final flag flew, the Titans celebrated by signaling the game-clinching first down.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — In a story Sept. 20 about Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Titans, reported erroneously that Walker is 49 yards shy of becoming the NFL's seventh active tight end to reach 5,000 yards receiving his career. Benjamin Watson with Baltimore became the seventh last week to reach that mark last week.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are boring and bullish when they're at their best.
And opponents bear the brunt of Tennessee's bruising attack. Just ask the Jacksonville Jaguars, who were gouged for 179 yards rushing in a 37-16 drubbing Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tennessee and Jacksonville each played much more like all those preseason predictions Sunday.
Derrick Henry, Delanie Walker and Jalston Fowler each ran for touchdowns, and the Titans pounded the Jaguars in the second half for a 37-16 victory.
Reality check? The result was quite possibly more indicative of what to expect from the AFC South rivals than what they showed in their season openers.
